Hi Bruno,

Four days wasn't long enough, especially,
since I'm hoping to make a "stable" coreutils release soon.

That change breaks coreutils' configure.
It happens because of this assignment in configure:


When configure is run, .#bootmp/lib no longer exists, so the
check for existence of getloadavg.c is wrong:

test -f "$srcdir/$gl_source_base/getloadavg.c" ||
  { { echo "$as_me:$LINENO: error: $srcdir/$ac_config_libobj_dir/getloadavg.c 
is missing" >&5

Confusingly, the diagnostic says ./lib/getloadavg.c is missing,
(which isn't true) while the preceding test checks
for ./.#bootmp/lib/getloadavg.c.
